Holidays are for......

Jenny Matlock

The holidays are more to me
then Christmas lights
and festive presents under the tree

They're more than quality
time with the family
they're about the birth
of a man who gave his life for you and me

Everyone should remember
the greatest sacrifice
A father could ever make
to send his only son to give his life
and all the world's sin on his shoulder's take

Thank you lord for everyday
and allowing us this holiday
to string the lights that shine through the night
thank you for the presents under the tree
and quality time with friends and family
and the greatest sacrifice in history.


  1. Amen! The perfect poem of heartfelt words giving praise and honor to God. Merry Christmas!~Ames

  2. Thanks to Him, indeed!

    And to you for remembering Him so well.

    Merry Christmas!


  3. Terry! What perfect holiday words you shared here!

    I love how introspective this post is.

    And even though I'm very late to the party, I'm sending many warm wishes your way for a 2012 filled with creativity, self-discovery and peace!

    Hugs from Arizona.
